As Mugen authors and creators. We take a lot of our off time making yours and our dream Mugen characters. We also deal with life probably working,school and other important life events. I feel myself and probably many authors hit plateaus every once in a while. Taking needed breaks from Mugen. I know sometimes we ask this question since it consumes so much of our time from other things. "What I am contributing?"  and "Is my time well spent?"

Anyone is welcome to give your thoughts on this. I mainly wrote this for other authors to give them more support and to keep them on creating more great Mugen works.

I can start first on my opinion:
I think Mugen is great past time for anyone who has dream character they like and relate to. Every person is different some are big Ryu fans, others are Akuma, or Subzero fans. Pitting your favorite Mugen character against a whole wide range of other characters when crossovers on mainstream games will never be possible like Mortal Kombat Vs Street Fighter. But in Mugen everything is possible! Your can make it a reality! Mugen is your dream coming true. It is also great past-time that keeps you busy from other distractions in the world that you want to filter out.

MUGEN is good for me because it has given me something to be busy about. My part in the MUGEN community is mainly I am a fighter first, and creator second. Although recently I have been more creating than fighting. Indeed, I get much pleasure and joy from fighting many other types of opponents. I love the weird matchups you can get through MUGEN. With IKEMEN GO, which is basically better than MUGEN, you can do even more and it comes with native online features and other newer and cool stuff.

MUGEN is good for me as a fighter because I love fighting against Guilty Gear, Blazblue, KOF, or other type of fighters. For me it's helped me understand more about fighting games and how they work, and how I can use that as leverage to improve myself as a fighter and creator.

MUGEN is just such a unique concept and its probably the most community driven game I can think of. Its something I’d like to be a part of

I get to express myself as an artist. Already working with a coder here. It's gonna be a long time but there's great progress on the graphical side of things.

Old school 2D sprites will never die.

Because it's an open world fighting game for me and for many other people.

Just like an open world RPG game, it's rare to find a game that literally allows so much freedom for free.
You can make your own character, put your favorites into one, have crossovers and even make a full game of your own.

The possibility is limitless with MUGEN.

-Back in 2000-2001 I felt it was open door to infinite match ups.

-Now, Freedom. Everything that companies consider not "mainstream enough" or not "easy money maker" (...) you STILL CAN do it with Mugen.
And to me, this is what is so good about it.
